AEAC exchanges expertise between African and European markets and assists companies to create lasting shareholder value through its operational know-how in the fields of trade and other regulatory issues, the relationships between business and government and international organisations, and corporate social responsibility.
AEAC operates as a commercial think tank and consulting company, with a multi-disciplinary group of mostly African experts, who help individual companies and trade associations, but also governments and international institutions to :
find solutions and negotiate for specific regulatory issues;
develop public-private sector cooperation;
improve economic cooperation between African and European markets;
strengthen African regional market integration;
facilitate fair trade and eliminate barriers between the EU and African countries;
develop sustainable business practices;
offer advice on business-government relations and corporate social responsibility;
develop the management capabilities of African companies for international expansion.
AEAC cooperates in Europe with EPPA (www.eppa.com).
Both companies are among the sponsors of Mazungumzo – the African Forum in Brussels (www.mazungumzo.eu).
